From the guy who brought you the documentary about Walmart…he’s organizing on the web and doing some really interesting things. He’s using you tube to distribute short 2 and 3 minute films about the issues that are easy to download & distribute. He host videos from “citizen journalists” around the country. Here (below) he’s going after FOX by going after their advertisers and you too can help. He has a sample script of what to say, a searchable list by zipcodes of who’s supporting FOX and a video clip of the day EVERYDAY of outrages things said under guise of “NEWS” on FOX. Here’s what they just sent me for participating. below is a letter to all the major news outlets. I also do a lot of business with Tractor Supply Co. for the farm. I found out they advertise on FOX. I’ve agreed to call their corporate people in brentwood and tell them how I feel about that.
Hello valerie ,
Thank you for signing our open letter to the major television networks urging them not to follow FOX down the road to war with Iran.
We’ll be delivering your signatures to the heads of the news divisions at the major networks.

Brave New Films
Here is the open letter:
Dear ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN,
“My station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at FOX News.”
That is CNN’s Christiane Amanpour explaining why the major television networks failed to accurately inform the public in the lead-up to the Iraq war, choosing instead to follow FOX’s lead.
Now, FOX is beating the drums for war with Iran. Robert Greenwald’s short film, “FOX Attacks: Iran”, outlines the evidence from the station’s own broadcasts, comparing their reporting before the Iraq war with what they are saying now about Iran.
You have a sacred responsibility to the American people to provide accurate and reliable information so we can best make the decisions which affect our lives. We urge you to accurately and thoroughly report all sides of this important story.
Please do not blindly follow FOX down the road to another war.
